What appeared to be a lovely hotel in a stunning location ... Made me cringe. Both starters, very average. Steak pie was edible but Cajun salmon was so disgusting and dry that I had to send it back. No atmosphere in the dining room and a general unease at the amount of time customers were kept waiting for food to... More

Lovely room, beautiful view especially when the sun set. Meal was nice, early breakfast request was not a problem. Downside was Wifi was not working and had to have a cold shower in the morning. When I mentioned this the next day, the reason I got was that it is a log burner used to heat the water and you... More

We were a bit apprehensive after reading some of the recent reviews, however were pleasantly surprised when we received a lovely warm welcome from a smiling receptionist. She took all our details and showed us up to Room 1.... spotlessly clean, stunning views out to Islay, Jura and Gigha which we enjoyed from the chairs on the balcony. Our bed... More

The hotel itself and staff were very good. The problem we had was there was no hot water in the room and they didn't appear to be able to do anything about it, This really spoiled what otherwise would have been a good break in the Mull of Kintyre Area. The food was ok but nothing special.

Stayed here again on route to Campbeltown . Had already stayed here in February and we were aware that the hotel had changed hands and were having some teething problems. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and the night we stayed the sunset was spectacular . On arriving at the hotel, yes the grounds need a bit of T.L.C... More

Very nice from outside, however I agree that the room needed a makeover with a lick of paint to cover up marks. Not much choice for breakfast. Would have liked to see kippers and smoked salmon and more of a veggie option. Staff really friendly. View was lovely caught a fantastic sunset on the 1st night.

What can I say about this hotel. On arrival my heart sank as it looked so unkempt. Weeds grew everywhere and it really was a mess. The location however is stunning. The room appeared clean on first arriving but it needed more attention to detail eg, marks on walls not cleaned off, paintwork scuffed, corners not hoovered. All that said,... More

Recently stayed for 1 night, have to say was disappointed. I had stayed towards the end of 2014 and gave a good review, this time i felt the standard had gone a little down hill, rooms were the same so no problem there, however the quality of food, service and bar stock had fallen. The menu was not as previous,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Putechan Hotel is a former Duke of Argyll’s hunting lodge dating from 1872. It lies on the western edge of Kintyre facing the dramatic Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of the Isles of Islay, Jura and Gigha, together with incredible sunsets. It is surrounded by rugged grounds with an amazing pebble beach, strewn with giant rocks for our customers to enjoy. Take a walk along the beach or perhaps a BBQ while looking out for the dolphins and minke whales. The hotel, now under new ownership, has been extensively refurbished and extended, and can now offer a variety of bedrooms to suit different tastes and pockets; from the bridal suite with roll-top window bath looking out to Jura and Islay and balcony facing the ocean, our 1st floor premier rooms with balconies, ground floor doubles with sea views and a linked disabled room. We can also offer more budget accommodation in our rear facing rooms and ‘bunk rooms’. We also have a fully refurbished and extended Venue catering for a variety of events from weddings (up to 120 seated). Attached to the south wing is the sensational ‘Rock Room’ with one whole wall formed by a massive rock with French doors to the rear and front with stunning views over the ocean. The room seats around twenty and could be used for meetings, smaller intimate weddings, yoga/fitness work-outs, business meetings, or an exhibition hall for local artists. Tell us what event you want to run and we will make sure it is one to remember. The south-facing courtyard is a natural sun-trap and looks over onto the private beach. With practically no light pollution, and clever outdoor lighting systems the Putechan enjoys fantastic stargazing on a cloudless night. ... more   less
